Walking in the Footsteps of our Ancestors

One of the things I love about living in Israel is the fact that every step one takes is walking in the footsteps of our forefathers. This is the very land promised to Avraham, Yitzhak and Yaakov. There is so much history here and it's ours. 

The reality that Eretz Yisrael is filled with the history of the Jewish people was highlighted for me a few days ago when reading the news. I came across an article of someone who went for a morning walk or run and ended up finding an ancient artifact. Sadly I can't manage to find the same article, if anyone knows of it, please link it in the comments below. 

Imagine going for a walk and finding something that proves the history that we learn in the Bible? How would that make you feel? Does it increase your belief in the Torah and the history of the Jewish people? What would you do with the item you found? Would you know where to take it to?

Please do share your answers below. If you are a historian or archaeologist, please post in the comments below that anyone who finds an ancient item can know whether they can keep it and if not, what to do with the item.

It's so exciting living in Israel, walking in the footsteps of our forefathers.
